For us the location was excellent. It’s a quick walk to some of the main sights such as the cathedral ruins, beautiful fort and other UNESCO heritage sites.
The service level is excellent and very personal. In terms of the looks, after the glitz and glamour of the reception (man… that’s a lot of gold leaf) the hotel quickly shows its age as well as definitely a faint odour of smoke lingering in the hallways (on the non-smoking levels).
The 70’s décor is somewhere in between really cool and really kitsch and. The rooms follow the same pattern and you half expect a young Roger More to pop around the corner. The bed was very firm and in the classically decorated bathroom you find a futuristic shower/bath with more buttons than the average spaceship (took me a while to figure that one out)!
Also do expect to walk into numerous ‘ladies of the night’ that walk some of the corridors around the lower floor shops throughout the day.
A 10 minute cab ride will drop you at the Cotai “strip” where the jaw dropping hotel/ casinos are based. Whether this hotel is for you depends on what you are there for. If you are there for a weekend of gambling just pay the extra few bucks and go to the Venetian… If it’s the historic city (and a few cheeky bets) then this is definitely a good option. That said, the Grand Lisboa Casino next door is great fun as well!
